Meeting Of Bible Study Group

Where:

Who:
All adults are welcome
 

What:
At the Kirk, we meet as a group to pray in Centering Prayer as a way of encouragement and support

Centering Prayer is one way of praying. It is meant to lead those praying to a deeper relationship with God. Centering Prayer is an ancient Christian practice and is both spiritually and psychologically sound.

The practice of Centering Prayer involves silently and quietly sitting and responding to the Spirit of Christ by consenting to God’s presence and action within. By the use of a sacred word, the person praying gently lets go of thoughts to make space in his/her heart for God.

Centering Prayer is one form of contemplation and is nurtured by regular worship and regular meditation on Scripture.

A Circle is a group of women who meet for warm, small group fellowship, Bible study, and service.

What Happens During a Typical Circle Meeting?

Members meet and greet each other, catch up with each other’s lives, and enjoy refreshments. The group takes care of business — this might include hearing news from the PW Coordinating team or planning a service project such as serving a dinner at the Helen Wright Center for Women in Raleigh. Someone leads a Bible study lesson. The Least Coin offering and pledges are collected. Members share good news, sad news, and prayers.
